3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at CK. Brilliant gold pour with a small layer of foam. Crystal clear. Dank, oily, resinous hop nose. No specific hop varietal comes to mind. Taste is juicy, oily, small sugar and sweet jackfruit plus cantaloupe and pineapple. Rich, sticky. No cheese, no strawberry, no red fruitiness, no stale character. Thank the lord.
